20. I popped on here from a link

Glad to see I already recommended this piece of great substance.
Couple of years ago I plugged through Mitchener's 'The Covenent' about the English and Dutch colonization of Africa. It was so much like how we handled the Native Americans.
I had to get used to reading the term 'colored'.
I never quite understood until then that it meant 'mixed' to whatever degree that made one more or less brown. And it used to be the "polite" way to discriminate, And the color of your skin absolutely dictated where you would live, work, and worship. This horrible history has deep roots.
